stream Mean Jeans’ new album ‘Tight New Dimension’

Mean Jeans

Mean Jeans will release their first album for Fat Wreck Chords, Tight New Dimension, this Friday (4/22) (pre-order), and a full stream premieres in this post. If you’ve checked out Mean Jeans before, you pretty much know what to expect here: Ramones worship with all the spirit, power pop hooks, and speed that you need to pull something like this off. It’s not just Ramones though. For one, Mean Jeans have a lot more guitar solos than those early Ramones records. They also have a different sense of humor, with track titles like “4 Coors Meal” and “Michael Jackson Was Tight,” and they even bring synthesizers in on closing track “Are There Beers In Heaven?” (There’s that sense of humor again.) It’s a fun record that rocks from start to finish, and you should give it a spin:
